"Superb Hosting, Support & Multi-Show Capabilities"
What do you like best about Transistor?

The ability to spin up multiple shows without additional costs or very much effort was a big selling point for me. This is becoming more ubiquitous in the podcasting space, but Transistor does a fine job of making the UI seamless and the experience frictionless. I've used other hosting in the past, and this is an area where the co-founders certainly shine--it's clear that they have spent a lot of time making the interfaces clean, usable and intuitive. In the 15 or so months that I've been on the platform, I've already seen one major overhaul on the UI which improved upon an already excellent user experience. Justin & Jon are practitioners in the podcasting space themselves, and host a show which I followed for some months before signing on with them. It's always good to be using a product in a space in which it's clear the owners are experts themselves. Support (of which I've used for only a couple things) has been excellent. Their documentation is solid, and on the few occasions where I've reached out for specific issues, responses have been swift and helpful. I suspect I will utilize their private podcast feeds feature at some point, but I don't have experience with it yet. However, specifically for business use cases, this is a huge selling point as well. Having privately accessible feeds is becoming more common with companies' internal podcasting and messaging, and I can see this being a useful (and huge) feature that I use eventually. Twitter links share nicely with a mini podcast player. Auto-generated website for each shows is a great feature if you don't want to fool with building your own site. Analytics are well done and easy to read--they've focused on the most valuable ones for advertisers, and also allowed linking up to 3rd party analytics. Onboarding my shows from their old feeds was seamless too--everything pulled over easily. For new show creation, they've synced up with all the major providers to really simplify getting your podcast listed everywhere. In many places, one click will submit your show to the right place. And it's nice to be a part of what I know to be a small, tight-nip founder team. This ethos goes well in the podcasting space imo.

What do you dislike about Transistor?

For a solo-practitioner, $19 may be a steep entryway for a monthly fee. There's a fee trial, but $19 is the cheapest plan. My podcasting, though proficient, is merely for the sport of it and I use it as an artistic platform. For solo shows with no intention of actually using the private feed feature or the unlimited-show feature, I might try out a less costly solution that will simply get someone's feet wet with podcasting. For those familiar with the format and the hosting options, though, you'd be hard pressed to find a better option.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

Every podcast has to be hosted somewhere. There are a ton of options, but Transistor has taken out the complexity of getting up and running for new shows and made it easy to get multiple shows hosted under the same roof. I particularly needed this multi-show feature as I like to experiment with new podcasts often.

"I've used the app for 3 months now and love it."
What do you like best about Transistor?

I have been an early access user of Transistor.fm for a few months before they launched. I have wanted to start a podcast for years and came up with every excuse in the book for not doing it. Transistor removes all of the headaches of publishing and maintaining your podcast. The online dashboard easy to use, you will be up and going in minutes. This is the hosting solution I knew I wanted even before I saw the product. So actually getting what I wanted at a really good price is a no brainer. Justin and Jon have been really responsive to feedback as well!

What do you dislike about Transistor?

I don't have any complaints about Transistor at the moment.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

The online dashboard easy to use, you will be up and going in minutes. They allow for multiple users so that you can have multiple people manage show episodes. It can even create a website for your podcast

"Incredibly easy to use, very reliable, and the best customer service!"
What do you like best about Transistor?

The ultimate reason I went with Transistor is because their plans are priced based on the number of downloads you receive rather than the number of shows you have. I really like the idea of charging based on your show's success rather than your initial idea. After starting my free trial, and created my first show, I immediately fell in love with how easy to use their interface was. They integrate with a number of email services, auto-submit your show to most of the top podcasting platforms, and recently added Zapier and a developer API for integrating with anything else you could imagine.

What do you dislike about Transistor?

The one feature that I initially had difficulty with is their built-in website builder. It's a little limited and was difficult to style nicely. But they also offer an embeddable HTML player and simple social media landing page as well, so really you could always utilize those to build a standalone landing page for your show too.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

Transistor.fm is a podcasting host, so this product creates a feed for your podcast episodes so they can be accessed by podcast players like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, and all others.

"Quickly Get Your Podcast(s) Online"
What do you like best about Transistor?

You can quickly get a podcast online and distributed. You can have as many podcasts as you like. Some hosts charge per podcast. You get access to a website for your podcast if you wish.

What do you dislike about Transistor?

That it charges per downloads vs "unlimited" downloads like some hosts. However that's part of it allowing for unlimited podcasts.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

I used to spend a lot for each of my podcasts. Now I can host on one place. I've noticed their analytics are easy to understand too.

"Transistor is the best platform for hosting multiple shows!"
What do you like best about Transistor?

Transistor has made my experience hosting multiple podcasts an absolute dream! I host multiple public and private podcasts with Transistor so I can speak to several different scenarios – all of which are completely pain-free with Transistor. Public podcast as a solo host: Standard setup and Transistor's UI makes it easy for me to upload my show, add show notes, host a website, and give visitors a simple way to subscribe. Public podcast as a co-host: My co-host and I both love Transistor and collaborating on show notes while an episode is in "Draft" mode prior to publishing is as easy as can be. Private podcasts: As a product consultant, I often run user experience interviews for my clients. I've used Transistor's private podcast feature to make the interviews available in a secure feed so that my clients and I can listen back to the customer interviews using the podcast player of our choice. It's very effective! In every scenario, Transistor has made hosting my shows simple, secure, and affordable. I'll be using them for a long time!

What do you dislike about Transistor?

Mobile layout was bad for a while but now it's completely fixed.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

I've been trying to elevate my public profile for a while and hosting my podcast on Transistor has taken the admin/maintenance side of the equation completely off my plate. I have to show up and do the work of creating content (obviously), but I never have to worry about my podcast going down or my host making my life difficult. It couldn't be any easier!

"Perfect for podcast hosting"
What do you like best about Transistor?

I have a business where I need to manage multiple podcasts, Transistor is the absolute best. Their interface is clean, their support is top notch, and it’s easy to setup secondary users to manage the different shows.

What do you dislike about Transistor?

I wish I could organize my shows into folders.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

Multiple shows all accessed with one login. Rather than having multiple signings and charges to my credit card.

"We trust Transistor for our business podcast"
What do you like best about Transistor?

Transistor is easy to use, works the way we need a podcast host to work and has phenomenal support. If you aren't already using Transistor to host your podcast, you should definitely switch right now. Their pricing also makes it a pretty easy decision to use their software.

What do you dislike about Transistor?

Nothing - it has all the features we need, and their support is amazing.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

We wanted to have a podcast for our company (Fathom) but don't have a ton of time to deal with hosting and uploading episodes to each platform. That's why we chose Transistor, we can automagically set things up and they take care of the rest.

"Nothing can beat the unlimited podcasts and one-click submission!"
What do you like best about Transistor?

Transistor has an amazing UI that makes podcasting dead simple. You can host as many podcasts as you want for the same price. They’ve got a killer one-click submit feature for podcast players. Also: Fantastic humans!

What do you dislike about Transistor?

Nothing. It’s super affordable for what you get and they’re constantly shipping new updates and improvements.

What problems is Transistor solving and how is that benefiting you?

You’d think that hosting a podcast was simple. But there’s so much nuance and a bit of a learning curve to overcome. Transistor holds your hand every step of the way and shows you exactly what you need to do. I never worry about anything podcasting-related because I know Transistor can do it or teach me how to do it.
